"The goal is to provide speedy help to the victims of the violence in their effort to repair the damage," the Federal Ministry of Finance was cited as saying by German news agency dpa.

According to the ministry, the federal government is working with officials in Hamburg to reach an agreement on the relief fund.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel had promised help and compensation. She said that it is not a question whether to help, but how to help.

However, the federal government could not say how much would have to be paid for damaged property.
